SAN MATEO, Calif., October 13, 2022 /3BL Media/ - Booster®, the leading tech-driven mobile energy delivery company, today announces the launch of its first environmental, social, and governance (ESG) report. The 2022 ESG Report details the company’s efforts across several ESG commitment areas aligned with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

“At Booster, we are working to simplify sustainability in order to accelerate it. We’re committed to helping our customers convert to sustainable energy alternatives seamlessly while reducing their energy consumption overall,” said Frank Mycroft, Booster CEO and co-founder. “Internally, we are equally committed to elevating our standards around the environment, our people, and our governance. Taking a more holistic approach to sustainability will drive value for our employees, customers and communities.”

With sustainability as the backbone behind Booster’s mission, strategy and service offerings, the company’s activities reflect its priorities in addressing a range of business practices, including safety, carbon emissions, diversity, equity and inclusion, and accountability. As part of its commitments, Booster is actively working to increase its positive impacts across the economic, social, and environmental dimensions of the energy landscape.

“With the issuance of our first ESG Report, Booster is taking a more definitive stance when it comes to our environmental, social and governance commitments,” said Chris Kaufield, vice president of sustainability. “Our report aims to record tangible progress on our journey to making this planet a better, more sustainable and more equitable place to live. With several new initiatives on the horizon, we are enthusiastic about what the future holds when it comes to new advancements across the energy landscape.”

Here are some key highlights from the report:

  • Booster is an active participant in the California Clean Air Day Pledge, a project of the Coalition for Clean Air, and strives to achieve 100% company participation.

  • Earlier this month, Booster was announced as a 2022 “Best Tech for Good” Finalist for “applying technology to tackle today’s most pressing social, global, and environmental challenges.”

  • Booster’s fleet of Smart Tankers — proprietary energy delivery vehicles — are backed by telematics and IoT enablement to ensure actionable data insights into efficiency and consumption.

  • In markets where Booster is able to obtain renewable diesel, the company has converted nearly all its fleet customers to the sustainable alternative fuel, which can offer up to 70% lower lifecycle emissions compared to petroleum diesel.

  • In 2022, Booster was named one of Forbes’ Best Startup Employers in recognition of its commitment to maintaining a good reputation, employee satisfaction, and steady growth.

  • The company continues to invest heavily in diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging, with women comprising 16% of Booster’s CDL drivers – almost double the industry average.

  • Booster’s internal training program, the CDL Academy, provides fully paid CDL training to offer Booster drivers meaningful, long-term career paths.
